Azores Wine Co. Branco Vulcanico 2018

PortugalThis blend of 85% arinto de azores (unrelated to mainland Portugal's arinto) and 15% verdejo was whole bunch pressed, and fermented in inox with battonage. Light on its feet, this medium-bodied white is fresh with wild melon, subtle spice, pear blossom over a cushion of lees, finishing with a mouthwatering saline wash. Lovely glimpse of the volcanic, marine-trinsic Azores.Tasted: 28 February 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 41.95 consignment Producer: Azores Wine Co.Distributors: Le Sommelier Inc.
